Although TVs are becoming smarter, more advanced and outstanding when it comes to their display quality, (even on the lowest end of the spectrum) their sales keep dropping every year.
Laptops, smart phones and tablets seem to be taking customers away from them every day. Less and less people own a TV or use it in the way it was originally designed to be operated. More customers connect their TV to their other media rather then watch cable or other forms of broadcasting.
One of the main reasons is that consumers have become accustomed to shorter waiting times, effective search engines and more interactive ways of watching or streaming their favorite shows.
Some smart TVs have voice activated search functions but nothing beats having a keyboard and Google's, Amazon, Netflix search engine at your disposal. Why wait ages to figure out what to watch by scrolling through endless pages on your TV screen when you can type in the name of your favorite show, on your mobile device and stream it almost instantly from anywhere?
If TV companies want to continue to prevail in this competitive market they should join forces with Microsoft or other tech companies in order to make the next generations of TVs as computer like as possible. After all, faster, cheaper and more interactive seems to be the winning formula for this new technological era.
